Members of a church in Marshalltown are trying to decided how to proceed after their building was destroyed by fire during the storms that brought flooding to Iowa this week. Marshalltown fire officials say the fire didn’t appear to be suspicious.
Firefighters spent more than four hours early Wednesday morning containing the fire, which began in the ceiling and attic of the building and caused the roof to collapse. The church, which is more than 100 years old, will likely be torn down. Church officials say they’ll rebuild, though it may not be in the same location. The church will hold a service outdoors on the church grounds Sunday morning.
